Remediation

Together with local institutions and stakeholders, we plan interventions for the areas to be remediated in view of making them available for new development opportunities.

Regenerating an area means creating new opportunities in environmental, social and economic terms. To do this, it is essential that the future reuse of the areas is planned at an early stage of the remediation process, in agreement with the institutions and local stakeholders. This approach is part of our integrated operating model which we use to oversee every stage of the process, from preliminary characterisation surveys to final certification. Thanks to the experience and skills we have gained in the field, we are now able to maximise the effectiveness and efficiency of our interventions and develop increasingly innovative and environmentally friendly solutions for each new project. We have a constant commitment to ensure the sustainable management of soil, water and waste. In compliance with the relevant legislation, we favour the application of in situ technologies in our projects. This enables the remediation of soil and groundwater matrices in their natural location, without resorting to excavation and disposal operations, thus minimising the carbon footprint of environmental activities.

Where we operate in Italy

We are present at over 80 sites, of which 17 are located within 13 Sites of National Priority. We own about 3,800 hectares of former or disused industrial areas in Italy, of which 1,100 are already available for repurposing and 1,844 are being remediated so that 75% will be restored by 2030. Most of the areas in which we operate were acquired or conferred by law in the 1980s and 1990s as a result of the political decision to engage Eni, then a public body, in rescue operations for industrial entities in crisis.

The Sites of National Priority have been identified and established by the Ministry for the Environment, Land and Sea Protection (now the Ministry of Ecological Transition) since 1998, in agreement with the regions concerned. The Italian Consolidated Environmental Act (art. 252 of Legislative Decree no. 152/2006 and subsequent amendments) states that "For the purposes of remediation, Sites of National Priority are identified in relation to the characteristics of the site, the quantity and hazardousness of the pollutants present, the significance of the impact on the surrounding environment in terms of health and ecological risk, as well as damage to cultural and environmental heritage". There are currently 41 Sites of National Priority. The administrative procedure for the remediation of sites of national priority falls under the responsibility of the Ministry of Ecological Transition.
